Calling all design lovers—the newly released coffee table book, By Design, The World’s Best Contemporary Interior Designers (Phaidon, 2021) celebrates the work of over 100 of the world’s hottest designers working in the industry today, including Kelly Wearstler, Martin Brudnizki Design Studio, Luca Guadagnino, Neri&Hu, Norm Architects, Studioilse, Studio Shamshiri, Faye Toogood, Vincent Van Duysen, Nate Burkus Associates, and more.
The book is both meticulously curated and delightfully unexpected, as the featured designers were nominated by a powerhouse committee of industry leaders, such as Marianne Goebl, Managing Director of Artek; Niki Haas, Co-founder of the Haas Brothers; Hanya Yanagihara, Editor in Chief of T: The New York Times Style Magazine; and Rachel Zoe, creative director, author and tastemaker.
From the sublimely saturated interiors of Santiago-based firm, Grisanti & Cussen and the bold modernism of Milan-based Luca Guadagnini (the designer/director of Call Me By Your Name), to the lush, cinematic designs of London and Hong-Kong-based Joyce Wang and the clean-lined minimalism of Washington D.C.-based Darryl Carter, By Design is truly international in scope—showcasing vibrant and diverse approaches to contemporary design from 30 different countries. Readers will find an inspired mix of styles, scales, philosophies and locations, all of which speak to the ways contemporary designers continue to move the conversation forward around what constitutes great design.
Whether you’re looking for serious inspo for an upcoming room makeover or you’re simply a fan of gorgeous interior design, By Design, The World’s Best Contemporary Interior Designers is a fresh and exciting new addition to the cannon of contemporary design.
